Finance Opportunity by Investing in CDFIs

Corporate and philanthropic partners can strengthen communities — and their balance sheets — by investing long-term capital in community development financial institutions (CDFIs) based on geography, balance sheet size, and focus.

Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) represents a diverse national network of more than 350 CDFIs. We are a fund-of-funds manager and trusted intermediary with more than 35 years of experience and approximately $1 billion in assets under management.

There are more than 1,200 CDFIs nationwide driving capital to disinvested rural, urban, Native, and other persistent poverty communities across America.

Ways to Invest in CDFIs

Invest in CDFIs Directly

CDFIs leverage partner funding with other sources of capital to lend in their  communities. And when borrowers repay their loans, CDFIs recycle the money to new borrowers, multiplying the impact each dollar has on local economies.
